If ever there was a need for a simple prompt, last night was it. Ohhhh, was it ever! 2 COLORS... that was the prompt this time around. I've been coughing at night lately, and Peanut has been having some weird sleep issues, so YAY for something tres simple on a night when I really needed it!

I've been eyeballing School House Rock for a layering since I bought it, and Woland arrived on Wednesday in my December mystery bag from Rainbow Honey. It was tough choosing between Woland and The Master, but in the end... I had to choose Woland. So much sparkle, and only one coat!

School House Rock is a purple leaning gray that's pretty unique in my stash. It's borderline lilacish, and Woland really pushes it over the edge to purple. And speaking of Woland, can I just talk about this glitter topper? Silver glitter, irridescent blue glitter, (my personal fave) silver square holo glitter, and a couple different sizes of matte black glitter in hexes and squares?!? I'm also pretty sure there's an irridescent purple in there too, and the base is a pretty tinted lavender color. I'm totally swooning over here!

Both formulas were really great to work with. I'm impressed with the Hard Candy creme polishes, and Rainbow Honey really knocked this one out of the park. Also, December's mystery bag featured mini polishes in 7.5 mL sizes rather than the usual 5 mL size... not sure if that was just for the Holidays, or if it will be a permanent thing, but I'm sooooo glad! And now I'm left thinking that Woland would look insanely sparkly and fabulous over Grayscale. I might have to try that one for a New Year's Eve. Really, is there anything to wear other than a total glitterbomb when ringing in the New Year?!?

For now... I'm sooooo happy that it's Friday! and I'm crossing my fingers (and toes!) that Peanut sleeps a whooooooole lot better tonight. Happy Weekend!!!

I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3

In case you missed my review of First Kiss, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health.

Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter shades on my toes lately…

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of.

Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit. 
Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times. 
This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd coat and add a 3rd for balance. Next, I ad…

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027, today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION...

Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and then add in some shimmer and glitter.
